Joe's Pub Live - As a Bolivian-American artist trained in the opera and theater world, Gian-Carla Tisera's subversive musical prowess is the result of two worlds colliding to create a powerful, original and groundbreaking fusion of musical genres. She was raised in Cochabamba, Bolivia and later moved to the United States where she completed her Master's Degree at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Since 2008 she lives in the city of New York where she found herself re-united with the folk music of her homeland and where she discovered the liberating force of jazz. She had toured with the Bolivian Baroque Project which showcased her voice on the world's greatest concert halls - including London's Wigmore Hall, Berlin's Konzerthaus, Vienna's Mozarteum, Istanbul's Hagia Sophia, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, Switzerland's KKL, Singapore's Esplanade Concert Hall, and many others. But when she moved to New York she began to collaborate with visual artists and to submerge herself in the city's famous jam sessions to explore improvisation and to expand her ideas on musical fusion. In this way she discovered her own musical and vocal artistry in the realms of jazz and world music. click here
